The J Expansion
The Staenberg Family Recreation Complex
As we wrap up construction on the Jewish Community Campus, The J Expansion warmly welcomes the community on Nov. 9. The expansion includes over 32,000 square feet of brand new, additional space where we continue to build a strong, vibrant and inclusive community that enhances wellness, meaning, and joy, based on Jewish values, heritage, and culture.
The J is well known in the community for the variety of quality programming. We offer to Kansas Citians of all ages, from our youngest friends in the accredited Child Development Center to our oldest Members in the Heritage Center, a home away from home. Everyone who walks through our doors, regardless of race or religion discover The J is a place for you and your family to live up to your goals.
You may know us for our amazing J Summer Camp, Encore! Dance + Acro program, or have seen a live performance in the beautiful 500-seat White Theatre. Now you can do even more when you visit The J's expansion in Overland Park. Not only are our Members looking forward to additional gym space, parking spots, and a renovated fitness entrance, but we have so much more to offer the community than ever before. Be sure to check out other portions of the Jewish Community Campus building that were renovated as well, including the main lobby, enhanced security, meeting spaces, and birthday party rooms.
